A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of being a part of Avery & Tommy’s Woods Hole wedding. Theirs was the kind of wedding that anyone who wants to get married on Cape Cod dreams about. It was, simply put…perfection.
The ceremony was held at the picturesque village church, The Church of the Messiah, in Woods Hole, with the reception immediately following at Avery’s grandmother’s oceanfront Penzance Point home.
Avery & Tommy traveled in style to their reception aboard the family’s vintage-inspired Commuter Express Launch, Comet. And, the party that followed was epic. Andy & I have never seen so many people on a dance floor at once. At one point, the elevated tent floor was bouncing so hard to the beat of dancing feet I wondered if it might come down. Happily, it did not, but the Swings of Sultan sure did bring down the house.
Here are a few of our favorite moments from Avery & Tommy’s AH-MAZING wedding:
The lovely Emma Josselyn gets Avery bride ready…not that she needed much help. B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L!
Classic nautical styling to Avery & Tommy’s wedding invitations by Thornwillow.
Avery & Tommy’s flower girl, Anna, gives high fives to the beautiful bridemaids, including Avery’s sisters, Wally & Caroline. Just love how the gorgeous flowers by Courtney’s Floral Creations perfectly compliment the girls’ peachy JCrew dresses.
Avery gets some help putting on her elegant JCrew wedding gown by her sweet momma, Meg.
While her girls react. Love their expressions of approval. Ahhhhh.
Across town, Tommy & his mates chill out before the ceremony.
Avery gave all of her besties monogrammed gold necklaces from Mark and Graham, which were a huge hit!
A fun perspective as Wally puts on hers.
Tommy gave all of his guys monogrammed shirts, and in return, they gave him a fabulous morning of laughter and good cheer.
I was head-over-heels for Avery’s lacy Stewart Weissman shoes. Her something blue could be found in her wedding band and bracelet borrowed from mom.
I don’t know what it is exactly I love about this portrait of Tommy’s brother, George, but I am crazy for it. It just feels so full of anticipation for things to come.
Avery & her girls get ready to head to the church…
Can we talk about the look of awe on sweet Anna’s face as she watches the older girls prepare to walk down the aisle? precious!
Avery & her proud papa, Jeff, arrive and are ready to make their way down the aisle. Such a dramatic moment.
Here comes the bride…as her happy groom waits her arrival at the altar.
The look of love.
Their commitment sealed with a kiss.
The new Mr. & Mrs. Yaaaay!!!
Down to the beach for a few photos with the girls.
Photos are over, now it’s time to have some fun…
Chillin’ during their own private cocktail hour.
Then off to the boat for their grand entrance to the reception. Loooove the light in this next one.
On board the Comet, time for a quick kiss…
Captain Jeff and the setting sun…
Avery & Tommy wave to their guests.
Setting off the Comet’s cannon to announce their arrival, as friends & family wave them in.
Happy and ready to party….
Some more beautiful floral arrangements by Courtney.
Details, details, details…
Their first dance…
Way to wrap it up, Tommy!
I’m not sure who’s crazy Uncle this guy was, but he sure did bring some fun energy to the party, flipping any unsuspecting woman who got too close! We saw a lot of leg that night! Wooo hooo!
Honestly, we’ve never seen people having so much fun on the dancefloor as they did at Avery & Tommy’s wedding.
The perfect ending to a perfect day.
As things wound down, Avery & Tommy slipped out, and sailed off into the night. Ahhhhh
